    1) Slumdog Millionaire
    2) 3.5
    3) Dev Patel, and some other Indian people
    4) A local Indian kid from the slums of Mumbai ends up on the Indian version of the Who Wants to be a Millionaire game show. He is accused of cheating right before the million dollar question. As he is being questioned it shows experiences from his life that helped him know the answers to the questions. Turns out its actually a love story in the end.
    5) I'd watch it again, but not in theaters. Maybe when it comes out on DVD or VOD.

    1) Frost/Nixon
    2) 3.5
    3) Frank Langella, Michael Sheen, Kevin Bacon
    4) A recounting of the historical story of when David Frost interviewed the newly former-President Richard Nixon. Frost must overcome his talk show ways and work to get some form of confession out of Nixon, who resigned before impeachment and was quickly pardoned by Ford.
    5) Maybe. I'd recommend it for anyone who's interested in getting a look at Nixon from the Hollywood lens, who's interested in gaining an idea of a man destroyed by conspiracy and paranoia. Its a compelling story and with the Oscar buzz its a good watch to see if its worth all the hype.

    1) The Wrestler
    2) 4.25
    3) Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei
    4) A down and out wrestler who's ten years past his prime attempts to make one final comeback at a relatively big match.
    5) Yes I'd watch it again. Besides the phenomenal acting, directing and story, this is one of the better movies i've seen lately. Its got tons upon tons of heart, it moves along at the perfect pace, it tells a story that is so true and so human its hard not to empathize. I know who i'm rooting for in the Best Actor category, I don't know how they could have even considered having the character played by Nickolas Cage.... Mickey Rourke is perfect.

    1) Twilight
    2) 2.5
    3) Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson
    4) Girl moves in with her father in a small town in Washington state. She falls in love with a vampire and then its a fight to save her life.
    5) I'd never watch it again. I only watched it because my gf had to screen it for her little cousin. Don't see it.

    1)RocknRolla
    2)4.5/5
    3)Guy Ritchie (director) Gerard Butler (300), Jeremy Piven, Chris Bridges and a bunch of British actors
    4)A classic Guy Ritchie film (Snatch, Lock Stock Two Smoking Barrels)with multiple layers of stories all intertwined. There is a big quasi mafia head, a group of hard working swindlers, lots of money going missing, and a crazy rock n roll star who spends most of his scenes loaded on coke
    5)I would definitely watch it again. Tons of wit, classic story blending, phenomenal characters and a nice twist on his standard formula. If you liked Snatch and Lock Stock, you'll enjoy RocknRolla.

    1)The Last Winter
    2)5/5
    3)Ron Perlman
    4)A group of oil company workers are preparing a site in northern Alaska for a future oil drilling when strange things start happening.
    5)I'd watch this again tonight it was so awesome. It is eerily reminiscent of The Thing and is one of the best shot suspense films I've seen in a long, long time... especially since most of the scenes are highly saturated with white snow and lots of light. The cinematography (camera work) is top notch and the story is the perfect balance of suspense and substance. Its a shame this great film has flown under the radar for this long, it is truly one of the best suspense movies of the decade, in all aspects.

    1)Black Snake Moan
    2)5/5
    3)Samuel Jackson, Christina Ricci, Justin Timberlake
    4)"After J.T.'s character leaves for active duty, Ricci can no longer restrain her sexual addiction and goes on a night long binge of booze and sex that eventually leaves her at the healing hands of Samuel Jackson. Jackson takes her in, and after numerous escape attempts (she's on drugs), he ties chain around her waist and attempts to show her how to live a better life"
    5) I would definitely watch this movie again, it was amazing! I did not expect a great story line to arise from this movie. After reading a review from CrosCntryAccord, I checked it out. Highly recommended! :)

    1)Up
    2)5 out of 5
    3) Not sure about any big names...John Ratzenberger who is in every Pixar film..i think
    4) By tying thousands of balloon to his home, 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen sets out to fulfill his lifelong dream to see the wilds of South America. Right after lifting off, however, he learns he isn't alone on his journey, since Russell, a wilderness explorer 70 years his junior, has inadvertently become a stowaway on the trip.
    5) Yes I will see again..probably in the theaters again, which shows how much i enjoyed it...I have never seen an animated film with so much emotion put into it...It was really funny, and really sad at some parts...Every female around me was crying at certain parts...No doubt one of the greatest movies i have ever seen

    1)Drag me to Hell
    2)4 out of 5
    3) Justin Long, and a chick that looks like the girl from the office
    4) This is Sam Rami's (Evil Dead trilogy, Spiderman trilogy) long awaited return to the horror film genre. Written by him and his brother it is, in my humble opinion, one of the best new horror films in years. Shot using his classic stylings that catapulted the Evil Dead films into b-movie fame, he tells the story of a mid-twenties woman who is cursed after not granting a dying gypsy a loan. There is as many scary parts as there are humerous parts and the film is a steady and well told story.
    5) Yes I will see again..probably in the theaters, it was well worth the price of admission.
